Because I owe it to myself, my family, my colleagues, and my clients to implement safe showing practices,

I pledge not to show any home to a stranger without first meeting them at the office or a public place and asking them to submit identification.

Identified Prospects

REALTORS® understand an "identified" prospect to be someone who you know personally, was referred to you by someone you know and trust, has been pre-qualified by a lender, or has provided you a copy of a government issued photo identification

Recommended Practices


  • Unless the request comes from a personal acquaintance, or someone referred to you directly from somebody you trust, we should never meet a stranger at a home for a showing unless we have first met them at our office (during office hours) or at a public place (if no one is at the office).
  • We should request Identification from all prospective buyers, and provide copies of identification to our offices in accordance with our respective office policies.
  • We should use the buddy system whenever we are unsure about a showing, and should make ourselves available to our colleagues if they should ever feel the need to take someone with them or feel unsafe.
  • We should always follow our intuition, and never step into situations that we feel uneasy about.
  • During showings, park your car in front of the property rather than in the driveway or in the garage, so that you avoid having your car blocked in.
  • Let the prospect walk in front of you. Don't lead them, but rather direct them from a position slightly behind them. You can gesture for them to go ahead of you and say, for example, "The master suite is in the back of the house."
  • Don't get cornered. Stand near an exit whenever possible. Make sure all deadbolt locks are unlocked for easy access to the outside.

Open Houses

  • Consider having someone join you for the open house, whether a fellow agent, a friend, or family member.
  • Implement an Identification system for Opens that allows you to take a snapshot of visitors ID’s before allowing them access to the home.
  • Always let someone who is not at the open house know what hours you are conducting your open house and have them check in on you from time to time.
  • When the open house has ended, call your friend and let them know all is well.


  • We should all consider the nature of our personal marketing and be aware that our advertising may place us at increased risk of being profiled by potential perpetrators.
  • We should respect and abide by the request from sellers who have selected the “Safe Showing” option for their property and only show these listings to properly “identified” buyers.
